I asked this same question about the West End about a month ago (read: seabythecity.com/?p=24521). With new places such as Lost & Found and Grotta Di Fuoco, it’s safe to say that the West End is really becoming a foodie destination. Both of those places are pretty damn hip with rave food reviews. I was inside Lost & Found the other night and actually felt I was in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I didn’t get to eat there due to the crowd, but I am hearing their food is amazing.
Anyway, I’m going off topic here… I am curious to hear what you folks think the East End is lacking?
With the new Seasons opening, plus other places such as Brixx & Barley, I personally feel we are ok on the Asian food/ Italian Food/ Pub front. What are we missing? And what are we missing as far as non-food is concerned?

Seabythecity.com was mentioned in a Long Island Herald article regarding Matt Pinelli and his East End Neighbors Association start-up. In one and a half years of blogging, I got three media mentions! So far my stats are: 2 in the Herald & 1 in Time Out NY. Not bad for a non-journalist / silly blogger.
Check out Matt’s website and join his cause! We in the East End need voice too!
In the meantime, if anybody wants to contribute to this site in any way, please contact me. I promise not to put you on any mailing lists, and I will return all emails.

I’ve been in conversation with Matt over at East End Neighbors over this topic. How would you draw up the different neighborhoods in Long Beach?
We have the obvious:
- The Walks
- The West End
- The East End
But then we have these:
- The Canals
- North Park
- President Streets
- Central Commercial District
I am guessing the five that I just listed are part of the East End, which is everything east of The Walks. The West End is basically everything west of The Walks. Am I right? Wrong? Am I missing any?
The west end of Long Beach aren’t the only ones with a voice. A new blog is in town: The East End Neighbors Association.
This is great for me since I live in the East End. Represent! It’s also great that the Long Beach blog community is growing. The more voices this city has the better. Just like in the movie Pump up the Volume , Talk hard! (whatever that means…)
Just a quick note to the East End Civic Association: The West End has t-shirts. I want an East End T-shirt!!!
